Nigeria: Female Bombers Dress in Men Attire to Gain Access to Mosque

The Nigerian defense headquarters said on Saturday that female bombers now dress in men attire to have access to mosque unhindered to detonate their bombs and this has caused security threat in the country.

Defense spokesperson Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar said in a statement reaching the press that the military authorities discovered that Boko Haram terrorists are determined to continue letting off bombs and have resorted to hiding their true sex identity.

He said the latest suicide attack in the mosque at Molai Umurari village in Borno State, where 22 people were killed and 18 others sustained various degrees is instructive in this regard.

The defense spokesperson advised the public to be wary of suspicious persons, irrespective of sex at worship places, markets and public entertainment centers.

According to Abubakar, the splinter cells of the remnant Boko Haram terror group still engage in some systematic isolated attacks, mainly on soft targets in their desperation to remain relevant, having been effectively dislodged and decimated.

However, when they are dressed with all their heads covered, its very difficult to know whether they men or women.

Boko Haram, which has spread its tentacles to Cameroon, Chad and Niger, has kidnapped thousands of people and killed more since 2009.

Early this year, the Nigerian government said it has "technically defeated" Boko Haram, but the unrelenting group has continued to carry out more attacks.
